    everybody thinks the next iPhone's going to be a huge step. half true, half false. next year Apple expands the iPhone line, deeply separates iPhones following the target audiences, and releases a complete new quaternary series to celebrate the 10th anniversary: entry-level, main users (two sizes), and business users. There must be some well communicable improvements for every iPhone, but the question is still with us: what is the game-changer feature of the decade?


    entry-level iPhone: stays fancy but not the smartest one: similar construction, improved features (camera, processor, connections), new functions rarely.

    iPhone: Retina 2K, 4.7" 2048*1152, 500ppi, with Home button

    iPhone Plus: Retina 2K, 5.5" 2400*1350, 500ppi, with Home button


    a new individual category (-> HP Elite X3) for comprehensive business use, first year in a few country:

    iPhone Pro: Retina 4K, 5.8" OLED HDR 4096*2160 800ppi, 1000 nit

    - new ergonomic design with no Home button
    - Touch ID built into the screen
    - new color options
    - 78% screen-to-body ratio (1.5x iPhone original)
    - 1 inch/oz. screen-to-weight ratio
    - 0.3-inch / 7.5 mm thick -> bigger battery + no camera bump


    Some extra (and some exclusive) features comming annually in the first three models:

    - sub-10nm technology (CPU, GPU, SSD, RAM)
    - interoperable cores in a DynamIQ SoC
    - TFLOPS level GPU
    - 1 TB Intel 3D XPoint Optane (GB/s) drive
    - Thunderbolt 3 and USB 3.1 Gen 2 compatibility
    - 4-8 GB 3D-stacked RAM (Tb/s)
    - Bluetooth 5 includes wireless high-resolution audio (2018)
    - 5G (up to 10Gbps)
    - smart connector
    - glowing Apple logo (notifications)
    - IP68
    - no SIM card (multi eSIM/Apple SIM)
    - split view
    - AirPlay Pro for desktop use
    - 802.11ad and 802.11ax + 4x4 MU-MIMO (up to 10Gbps)
    - fast (<1 hour) & long-range wireless charging
    - new battery technology: 2 days heavy use, charge(r)less weekend
    - 12 hours SoT
    - time-of-flight sensor (ToF)
    - heat pipe cooling system
    - stereo sound recording
    - four speakers
    - EVS (Ultra HD Voice)
    - 16MP (5120x3200) dual camera (VR 3D), 1/1.6 sensor, 1.6 µm pixel size, f/1.6
    - 5K HDR video recording 5120x2880
    - ISP with 1 trillion operation per photo in 0.01s
    - dual pixel AF
    - 2K slo-mo 1000 fps
    - AR camera system (depth sensor, motion sensor, gesture sensor, Intel Real Sense 3D)
    - laser focus (front and rear)
    - 5x optical zoom
    - color spectrum sensor
    - dual 6-axis OIS
    - 4K selfie video, dual camera, OIS
    - 360° sphere 3D VR-panorama photo
    - 2nd gen. (iPhone X - 2020) with 6.4-inch microLED Retina 5K 5760x2880 (2:1) 1000ppi, 82% screen-to-body ratio (1.25x iPhone 7)
    - foldable 4K OLED laptop dock with full size keyboard and Pencil capabilities, <1 lbs

    from 999 €

    in 2018 the Home button and SIM cards leave the iPhones forever and the new design and OLED screen both arrive to all iPhone already (except the entry-level one). 2019 will be the year of the optimized coherent synergies, and in 2020 everybody will be shocked by the new iPhone X, the first AnTuTu-millionaire smartphone with 1000x CPU performance of original iPhone, includes all of these features above.

    belive or not, you can recognise the true Apple logic behind this concept

    remember this, and next September you'll watch with big eyes

    Shipping times are still 3-4 weeks (according to apple.com) for most of the 7+ models, can we at least wait until those are available immediately before discussing the iPhone 8?

    ^agreed with above. But OP, those are quite some lofty goals that highly doubt Apple will spec out.

    Unless you were at Cupertino, you probably don't really know anything.

    Apple will put the head phone jack in and be innovated again

    I do understand your opinion, but it's not a dream of me. I don't even interested in VR, so the current resolution is just good enough for me. see you in next September.

    Back to reality.....and we'll get smaller bezels, possibly OLED & True Tone, usual cpu/gpu/camera improvements plus one other thing.

    That's it.

    Nobody wants a VR headset, that's a come on to get millennials to buy.

    7s will have a true tone display and perhaps a few other features and that's it.

    Phone is damn near perfect. I don't understand what people really want, physical design wise.

    Kill the camera bump and antenna lines. Trim down the top and bottom bezels some more. That's all I could ask for.

    This is a geek's wish list, and definitely not apple's list.

    1. VR? not gonna happen
    2. 4K on 5.5" screen? for what? drain battery and heat up faster than it can recharge with little benefit.
    3. Curved screen? seriously those gimmick curved TV are a niche market.
    4. no camera bump? not gonna happen unless they want to downgrade camera picture quality or increase thickness. two biggest compromises just for no camera bump? not gonna happen.
    5. 4GB RAM and USB 3. I wish for USB 3 but apple is pushing for cloud, not local storage.

    some of us never pay full price for a phone. we spend a faction of the cost by using carrier subsidize/promotion and selling old phone. for example, I paid around $200 for iphone 7 plus, including tax and activation fee.

    What this person said! I'm still in my honey moon phase with my launch day 7. At least wait until everyone has there's before we start discussing the next iPhone!

    Not really. The bezelless phone with Amoled was supposed to be this year, but got pushed back to next year for tenth anniversary addition.

    You want a lousy 8MP screen? Cameras have more than 20MP already.

    I just want fast and wireless charging. I don't care about that vr bullshi* I had that on my old s7 used it like once. I think the iPhone 7 would be perfect with wireless charging.
